Emily Post says "Manners at the most formal dinner party are exactly the same as they are at home." Rather formal directions in how to eat soup; how to serve meat in a house without a maid; which implements to use in cutting salad and eating fruit; proper use of a finger bowl; the difficulties of eating spaghetti gracefully; how to handle chicken bones and other "unwanted morsels;" and much more. Some examples of bad manners.
Supposedly, this film was made specifically for boys.
